Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus,

The Alumni Relations Team has interacted with thousands of graduates at events, through personal visits, emails, written and telephonic communication as well as via various social media platforms during 2018. The Durban Alumni Association AGM held on the Howard College campus, the Cape Town Alumnus Dinner,  the Port Elizabeth and East London Alumnus Dinners, the April Graduation ceremonies in both Durban and Pietermaritzburg as well as the Spring Graduation Ceremonies in Durban in September, the Zimbabwe Alumnus Lunch, the Swaziland Alumnus Lunch, the Film Screening/Movie Evening at Musgrave Centre in Durban, the Richards Bay Alumnus Lunch, the Job Skills and Leadership Skills Workshops which took place in Durban and the London Cocktail Reception are some of the great successes. In addition, the Durban Alumni Association has been very active with many interesting talks and tours arranged throughout the year.

The country specific Facebook pages for alumni based in the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Lesotho have remained very popular.  There has also been considerable interest in the main Facebook page for all alumni.

Communication via the website, FacebookTwitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. In order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile telephone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via a quick email to or the website using the following address:

An exciting line-up of events has been planned for 2019 which includes new events in Botswana and Namibia as well as in various parts of South Africa and in other neighbouring countries. We look forward to seeing you at some of these events!

With our very best wishes, 
The Alumni Relations Team.
